IRFU Signs Memorandum Of Understanding With Ireland Touch Association

Ireland Rugby (IRFU) and Ireland Touch Association will work closely together, to develop the game of Touch Rugby in Ireland.  In 2023, the two bodies collaborated to develop a suite of educational resources on Touch rugby , which can be found here.

The IRFU is committed to offering choice to participants and this partnership will further strengthen our ability to deliver a quality non-contact form of the game. In the recent ‘State of the Game’ survey, 30% of people surveyed said they wanted to take part in non-contact forms of the game.

Currently, qualified coaches from the ITA are training staff in the four provinces to deliver Touch rugby modules in clubs, schools, and third level institutions.
